    I was looking to buy a range rod, but then thought I'd check with my favorite business supplier - McMaster Carr.

    Part # 4568T12 ($12.14): 3/8" x 36" 6063 aluminum rod with a 0.145" hole all the way through and ready to tap with a 10-32 tap. Then I found a handle, part # 2454K64 ($3.63).

    Problem solved.

    You might want to add a bore guide.

    I read somewhere that the least abrasive rods are the ones that are harder than the barrel (think stainless) and the more abrasive are the softer (think aluminium and brass).

    Spot on about the aluminum. The bore guide is the one item I DO already have. I was looking for something else to use besides the hickory ramrod that came with the rifle.
